It isn't loaded with salt, sugar, preservatives, coloring and lord only knows what else. My wife and I did two more canning s of tomato s and four quart freezer bags of cut up apples this evening to make apple pies with latter. I probably have twice as many jars of tomatoes(juice and cut up) as is in the photo above now. :D
